    WHO'LL STOP THE GRAY? Tune: "Who'll Stop the Rain?" Long as I remember, I've looked thirty-three. I hear the waitress sayin', "Must see some ID." Who can guess my age is Fifty years today?

Still the gray keeps comin', More and more each day, And I wonder, Still I wonder: Who'll stop the gray? Tried to trim the white ones Out of my goatee, But if I...
